I always like to include something with the Canadian flag on it, in each shoe box I pack. An easy way to let the recipient know which country the box came from. The souvenir section of any store often has little items that can be bought, such as tags, stuffed animals, key chains, etc.
I got these Canadian flag lapel pins in the mail today. A great addition for a shoe box. And best part is - they're free! Just contact a member of parliament and they will send them out to you.
What other items have you come across with the Canadian Flag on it?
